I have been through ALL the therapies for psoriasis as it has been challenging me and my Dr's for 30 years. Without a doubt Dr Avarbock is on the top of my BEST DERMATOLOGIST list! He is also on top of his game, a smart man! A good experience starts with a caring pleasant person and you will have that as well as a highly qualified physician in Dr. Avarbock. I have only met one other Dr that I can say all this about. He is a rare find and I consider myself fortunate.

I am new to New York and saw Dr. Avarbock this week for a skin rash. I was a bit hesitant since I have a dermatologist I liked in my former city. Dr. Avarbock put me to ease immediately. He was knowledgeable, thorough, patient and very friendly. He explained everything clearly, answered every question very thoughtfully and was very personable. He immediately diagnosed my condition and gave me medicine to correct it. I am very glad I found Dr. Avarbock and will return if another problem arises.

Dr. Avarbock was welcoming and amiable, and gave excellent, coherent explanations of the test and the possible outcomes. He's patient-oriented and answered all questions. An excellent first experience.

I saw Dr. Avarboch because my Doctor was out on medical leave and I was very impressed. He is thorough, knowledgeable and informative. He gets back to you quickly with test results and correspondence.

Dr. Avarbock was amazing. I went to have a skin tag removed and I am such a baby for things like that. I did not feel any pain. He was pleasant and told me everything he was going to do before he did it. He made me feel so comfortable. I would recommend anyone I care about to this physician.

Our family has been seeing Dr. Avarbock for a few years. My husband has metastasized melanoma and has a body check every three months with Dr. Avarbock who is always up-to-date on my husband's health information. My daughter and I also see him for a check-up and any issues. He always listens, takes his time explaining and is very thorough.
